The TomTom App for iPhone version 1.4 is compatible with iOS 4 and, among many new features, now includes multitasking functionality that allows you to receive turn-by-turn directions while their iPhone is running other Applications.
The new version of the TomTom app is a good example of how multitasking is improving the usability on the iPhone, Apple waited way to long to enable this functionality standard on computer operating systems.

With version 1.4, TomTom has integrated several situation-specific multitasking capabilities to the App to ensure that users can continue to receive the best routing directions from their TomTom App even while they take advantage of other iPhone Applications:
- Seamless Navigation while Calling – You can now make and answer calls while navigating with the help of visual turn-by-turn instructions. With this feature, users see visual instructions even when they are on a call, so they never have to choose between making or taking a call and receiving continuous directions to their destination.

- Background Navigation Instructions – You can see other Apps on the screen while still receiving spoken turn-by-turn instructions from the TomTom App, while it operates in the background.

TomTom is currently offering the U.S.A. and U.S. & Canada versions of the App at $49.99 and $59.99, respectively.
TomTom App for version 1.4 runs on OS 3.0 and iOS 4, however users should upgrade to iOS 4 to be able to take advantage of all of the new features.
